A large spotlight illuminates you, seated down in what appears to be some sort of armchair. You can't make out much of your surroundings aside from a figure, almost black against the light.
"Hello all you lovelies! I've spent so long building this for all of you here on this endless night and I'm sure you'll be a wonderful audience! I can do magic, did you know? In fact, my favorite magician is Ahmad Suradji (Editor's note: Don't look him up)! What a man he was! Before I get off-track, however, I'd like to point out that while we're in my realm, I make the rules. That means that everyone laughs at the jokes, or you get the pokes. Get it? Haha! In fact..."
Shaco grins big and wide, his jagged teeth like daggers glinting in the light cast around the room as he pulls out a long bladed weapon.
"This is Theodore. He loves company, and he told me earlier that he was dying to paint this forum READ! HAHA! "
"Lastly, a friendly reminder: Please do not try and exit the auditorium or even leave your seats until the show comes to its conclusion. I've been preparing such a long time for your arrival and I would just hate for you to act like poor guests! Without further adieu, Ask me... Anything."
With that, the spotlight in your face dims and another much smaller one would illuminate the puppet as he sits down, cocking his head sideways and once again and flashing that eery grin. As your eyes adjust to your surroundings, you notice that you're in a small forest clearing made out to look like a very crude theater. It's oddly silent, as though even the crickets are afraid to interrupt the show.
"Well? What are you waiting for. I've got forever."
